MONAVILLE - The third suspect in a break-in reported at the old Monaville Grade School on Aug. 23 has been identified and arrested.

As reported in the Sept. 11 edition of The Logan Banner, three individuals were reportedly caught on video surveillance breaking into the facility and stealing a flat screen television off the wall along with some other unidentified items. Haleigh Shawn Hughes, 18, of Logan, and Cameron Michael Farmer, 19, of Logan, were initially arrested and charged, but one suspect remained on the loose.

The footage reportedly showed the third individual wearing a black jacket with a hood and a white ball cap, along with what appeared to be black jogging pants.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Logan County Magistrate Court on Sept. 5, after the initial two suspects were charged, one of them provided a written statement on who the third person in the case was. Richard Neal Williams Jr., 29, of Wilkinson, has been arrested and charged in the incident.

According to the complaint, Williams had been distributing the stolen items from the school by himself.

As with the other two suspects, Williams was charged with breaking and entering other than a dwelling and grand larceny. He was arraigned by Logan County Magistrate Dwight Williamson on a $7,500 bond, which he has posted.
